Saturday STEM Academy
DATES: Saturday October 14.
TIME: 8:45 a.m.
LOCATION: ASU Campus, Life Science Building
Fall 2017 season
Alabama State University's College of Science, Mathematics and Technology (CSMT) is committed to cultivating and nurturing the interest of young scholars in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
CSMT will host three Saturday STEM Academy events for middle and high school students in the tri-county area this fall semester, on October 14, 2017.
Saturday STEM Academy aims to provide hands-on activities and laboratory experiences for middle and high school students in the tri-county area, challenging participants to think beyond the traditional boundaries of the classroom and to see what doors a degree in a STEM discipline can unlock.
ASU professors and students will be on hand to lead participants in a day of scientific discovery. Each Saturday STEM Academy will feature three scientific laboratory sessions.
Free and Open to All Area Middle and High School Students
There is no cost to attend; students simply need to bring an open mind and a desire to explore and learn.
For additional information, please contact Dr. Carl S. Pettis or Mrs. Tracye Dixon at 334-229-4465.
About the College of Science, Mathematics and Technology
Alabama State University's College of Science, Mathematics and Technology (CSMT) is on the cutting edge of some of today’s most groundbreaking research and technological advances, garnering millions of dollars in grant funding from institutions such as the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Institutes of Health. The college is home to several STEM-related centers of excellence, including the Center for NanoBiotechnology Research.
From nanobiotechnology, to cancer research, to tissue engineering, to management of big data, CSMT students and professors are solving today's most complex problems, right here on the campus of Alabama State University. Much of this research takes place in the state-of-the-art Life Science Building, a 85,000-square-foot, five-floor modern facility that features research labs, animal rooms, walk-in cold rooms, dark rooms and a 2,000-square-foot vivarium. The building houses the University’s biological science programs, including the Ph.D. program in microbiology.
